1 John 4:17 “Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgement: because as he is, so are we in this world.” The Leverage
John 10:30 I and my Father are one
Today’s opening Scripture reveals a remarkable account of how the Lord Jesus and the believer are not only one in life but also in living. It says “…because as he is, so are we in this world.” When the Lord Jesus walked the earth, He walked as and like His Father God would walk if He was there in Person. He was a flawless reflection of His Person; He was the brightness or outshining of the Father’s glory. He and the Father were one in every sense of oneness.
In the same vein, we have taken His place in unveiling Him to the world, just as He took His Father’s place in unveiling Him to us. It is true in our case that as He is, so are we in this world. We are extensions of Jesus to the world; we are the branches of the true vine, Christ Jesus the Lord. We are the light of the world today; a city set upon the hill that cannot be hidden. He is the light shining in us, and we are the outshining of His glory. What a privilege and a blessing this is! Hallelujah!
Beloved, as a child of God in Christ, you are a reflection of God’s glory here on earth. You are the outshining of His glory. That is who you are. When people come in contact with you, they see God’s glory and splendour. They relate with Divinity in humanity. You are more than flesh and blood; you are divine. You are born from above, the realm of God; that is what it means to be born again. Your walk of faith and of love attracts the world to the Father. Just as the Father was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, Christ is now in you reconciling them to Himself. You are now a broker of kingdom power; a reflection of glory divine. Let your walk reflect who you are!
My Solid Front (Confession):
In the Name of Jesus, I declare that I am divine, born from the realm of God; therefore, I am not ordinary. I am of God, and I am as Jesus is, in my world today. Hallelujah! Amen.
FURTHER MEDITATION:1 JOHN 4:4; 1 JOHN 5:1-4.
